The Holiday Home with The X Factor

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in over 20 different self catering homes in Ireland over the years and Lark Cottage was without doubt one of the best. We had some lovely weather but even on wet days there is plenty to do. Tralee town is only 15 mins drive away, much to the delight of my teenage daughter (never having enough to wear!)

A spot of rain didn't stop us from walks on the beach collecting shells, or sitting on the rocks down where the river runs into the sea, watching the fish jump in the evenings.

We spent a day in Dingle, only 1 hr away. The ocean world was good fun, my favourite was the giant turtle, he looked like a wise old man as he came down to inspect us, hubby liked the cod, so much so that he hasn't eaten any since, and princess loved the touch pool, until she smelled her hands! Then we went on the boat trip to see Fungi. It was a brilliant experience.

The cottage is in an ideal location as there are loads of places to go and some lovely places to eat. The fact that the Golf Club is only minutes away means you don't even have to drive if you want to go out for a drink. The food there is tops and the staff are very friendly.

For swimming, the beach is only a few minutes walk from the house or you can go to Banna strand but there are lots of other beaches around.

For us the icing on the cake was the house. If the house isn't right it doesn't matter about location or weather. A holiday is about the feel good factor and Alanda and Kieran really know how to treat their guests.

Lark Cottage is a beautiful home, very clean, comfortable and with stunning views. The attention to detail is first class. The guest book has information on everything you might need, from places to eat to the emergency numbers. The beds are very comfortable and it was great to be able to get a full nights sleep without the morning sun wakeneing you (or the children) at the crack of dawn. Why? Because there were proper curtains on the windows, not the usual flimsey things a lot of holiday homes hang on their windows.

We spent many hours just watching the the way the light changed on the mountains, or listening to the birds singing, or just relaxing reading a book, or sitting in the garden with a glass of wine.

We would like to thank Alanda and Kieran for a wonderful holiday, for being available any time we needed advice or had a problem. We wish you and your family all the best and hope to go back to the jewel we have found in 'The Kingdom' next year.

Owner's Response: Wow, what a lovely review, we are delighted that the guests enjoyed their holiday and in particular our cottage. The feedback given here is what we strived for when decorating the cottage and dealing with our guests so it is good to know our efforts were worthwhile. Great guests and good fun to deal with, we'd love to have them back again soon.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent our Summer vacation in Barrow, Co. Kerry at the lovely Lark Cottage. Our stay was beyond exceptional. The lovely cottage is situated in the shadows of the Slieve Mish mountains and borders the Tralee Golf Club. Our family enjoyed our coffee in the morning while watching the mountains uncover themselves. The living room picture windows frame those spectacular mountains and the beautiful Barrow Harbor. The has been thoughtfully appointed with all the furnishings and supplies we needed to feel at home- away from home. The large and well equipped kitchen allowed us to cook fresh lobster, mussels and crab claws from the fishermen in Fenit, while the proximity to the breathtaking beach allowed us to walk off all of those delicious meals. We found the cottage to be clean and well-maintained. Yard furniture allowed us to take advantage of some exceptionally clear skies during the day and moonlit nights outside. The fireplace in the living room welcomed us in the evening.

The owners of Lark Cottage were extremely accommodating with our inquiries. A library of reading material on the area, videos and music made us realize we could have left all of our reading material at home. The area offers unmatched scenery and touring and some great meals including Spa Seafood in Spa and Kate Browne's in Ardfert. We had enjoyable days touring the area including Ardfert Cathedral and St. Brendan's Well, Dingle town and Slea Head but the best part was coming back to the cottage and wandering the beach and dunes. The rugged beauty of Barrow and this corner of Kerry will never leave your soul. Staying at Lark Cottage was the perfect vacation for our family and we plan many returns.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to give this lovely review and also giving advice to future holiday makers on where to visit. What a great idea to get the seafood directly from the fishermen in Fenit, we haven't even done that ourselves! We look forward to having you stay with again, thank you.

Lark Cottage, August 2012

  • 5 of 5

FANTASTIC. We have primary school aged children who love the beach. The cottage was perfectly placed for us to walk down everyday and enjoy the sea and the surf. The walk was very safe for this age of child, with a nice grass verge along the road so they could walk back to the cottage if one wanted to return before the rest of us.

The cottage itself was also perfect for our needs. The sleeping accommodation is nicely in one wing of the cottage so once the smaller members of the party were abed, the adults didn't have to worry about disturbing them whilst cheering on the olympians on the TV. The second sitting room meant children could entertain themselves away from us or away from each other at times. And the sitting area in the main bedroom provided yet a third space for retreat from other family members when needed. The garden was lovely and large for running around, playing football and other games. The views from the lovely light and airy sitting/dining room were divine - so much better to look at the Dingle peninsula than to be on it ! The Rose of Tralee festival brought street markets and theatre which we all enjoyed. We met Funghi the Dolphin which particularly thrilled the children and on a clear day we climbed Caherconree for yet another stunning view. On rainy days, Tralee provided a cinema and the aquadome to amuse. But best of all, from the gates of Lark Cottage we met some wonderful and generous Kerry residents. By the end of three weeks, none of us wanted to leave. A perfect family holiday for all.

A wonderful cottage with great surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed two wonderful weeks in Lark Cottage. The house, the landscape, simply everything has been perfect to us and our sons (2 and 4 years old).

Many thanks to the owners who gave us so much support when required.

The house is just huge, the interior complete, the garden has been a big playground for our sons. The ocean is just a short walk away.

We can recommend Lark Cottage to everyone who wants to spend its holiday in Ireland, County Kerry.

I would like to thank Kieren and Alanda for making our summer

holiday 2009 so so enjoyable. One very important part of our holiday is not that the sun has to shine every minute or more but that we as a family on holiday have no stress or no big

disappointments, and our accommodation this year in Lark cottage certainly came up trumps! Lark cottage was, if not more; exactly what it promised to be, with a great supply of information there to help you from A to Z , and very helpful and friendly owners at the other end of the phone for any query what more can you have? I really do not want to go too over board in writing this review as I definitely would like to return to Lark Cottage and I do not want to be disappointed if I cant get my booking in because there will be too many before me!!!!!

Would I recommend Lark Cottage? Yes of course I would.

There is so much to do in this beautiful scenic location. It is a great touring base to explore the Kingdom of Kerry but at the same time it is in such a lovely location you may not want to travel too far! As well as being surrounded by views of Tralee Bay, Brandon Head, the Sliabh Mish Mountains and Kerry Head you will be within walking distance of secluded Barrow beach which connects with Banna Beach which is renowned for it's surfing and beautiful Ballyheighue beach.

Tralee Town is only 20 minutes drive away with all the amenities you would expect from a bustling market town. For indoor activities you can choose from the Kerry County Museum, The Aqua Dome for water slides and a cinema to name a few.

At the cottage you will also overlook Tralee Golf Club which was designed by Arnold Palmer. The are several other golf clubs within the area and Ballybunion and Killarney Golf Courses are within 30 minutes drive.

There are a number of traditional and seafood pubs and restaurants in the locality and Tralee Golf Course serves meals all day if you fancy breakfast overlooking the 1st tee.

Fenit Harbour is less than 15 minutes drive and has a popular Marina and relaxed atmosphere. The Sailing School in particular is very active during the summer season. Sea Angling is accessible through this port and River Fishing on the River Feale is available in Listowel approximately 30 minutes drive away.
